  1. Full sets take up a lot of space. I have that space, but that doesn't mean I want to use any more than I have to. Additionally, importing folders full of bin/cue/wav/etc for certain disc rips is messy. In a perfect world, every game would be compressed and stored in a single file. It seems most systems have at least one option, but with so many emulators and so many compression formats, it's been tricky figuring out what that option is. So far I've determined the following system - emulator - compression combos: PSP - PPSSPP - CSO Playstation 1 - Beetle PSX - CHD Playstation 2 - PCSX2 - GZ Gamecube/Wii - Dolphin - GCZ Dreamcast - DEmul - CHD Are these the best combos for these systems? What about other disc-based systems - Amiga CD32, Sega CD, etc? Thanks.
  2. Hi all, I am wondering which are the best emulators for both Xbox classic and 360 right now even if they are in development. What I am aware at the moment is there is Cxbx and Xenia for each console. Appart from this, is there any way these emus (or other you may know) can open other compressed game extensions? I am squeezing my hard drive at the moment. Thanks a lot and have a good weekend
  3. so I'm trying to save space and compress my roms and then let Launchbox extract them as needed, this works GREAT for PS1 and earlier generation ROMs because they are already relatively small files. But when I tried this on my PS2 games it works, but takes forever (which is understandable sine the file I tested was a Double Layered Disc that is 8 GB), so my question is, which compression settings are the best for not only saving on File Size, but also Fast Extraction Time? For the record I am using 7zip and compressing to .ZIPs with these settings: Ultra, LZMA, 8 MB, 128 Word Size. These settings brought my 8 GB ROM down to 6.8 GB, so its a decent amount of savings. What settings have you guys tried and what do you think would work the best?
  4. Hi all, As I stated yesterday, I am new around and planning to get a massive game collection (with time and effort). Even though, I have realised -talking of CD games era- that they take a lot of storage so, trying to figure this out before getting a proper external storage, I would like to know which is the best way to store games to have an idea of how much room I can have occupied in a hard drive. I am thinking of PS1, PS2, PSP, Game Cube, DreamCast, Wii and Xbox Classic for now. I am asking this because most of them seem to be in RAR and then some bin+cue inside or an iso file or something similar. Is there any compressed way launchbox emulators can read them so I can save as much storage as possible? Many thanks.
  5. so I finally got around to dealing with my video files here's how you can compress your video files with no loss of quality. http://blogs.it.ox.ac.uk/adamweblearn/2013/10/how-to-compress-large-video-files-without-losing-quality-using-handbrake/ the program is free, super easy to use.
